40 Swine Flu Cases Now Reported in U.S.

Health officials checking persons entering U.S. for signs of sickness

MONDAY, April 27 (HealthDay News) -- The number of confirmed cases of swine flu in the United States has doubled to 40, with all the new cases coming from a New York City high school that had previously reported eight cases of the infectious disease, U.S. health officials said Monday.
